Personal Quote:

If I had been born even 20 years later, I might have sung at the Metropolitan Opera. I might have marched for civil rights. I would have been here for life would have been very different. Of course, I would not have met Mr. Gershwin, and that would have been a shame.


Has said she felt her singing was better received in Europe, also because she mainly sang works by European composers, such as Brahms, Schubert, Schuman and Mahler. See more »
